The space
Welcome to the Boathouse!

The Boathouse is perfect for a romantic weekend. It has been converted into spectacular yet affordable accommodation, with heaps of character and two large rooms. There is a comfortable sitting room with kitchenette complete with bench top oven, hot plates, sink and tea/coffee making facilities. There are two single beds. The boating decor, complete with antique boating accessories, painted waves & clouds, high ceiling, Stable doors and Cedar finishes creates a unique ambience!

The next door, partitioned bedroom is lined with sweet smelling Japanese Cedar and has charming decor including model boats, bronze propeller, old travel trunks and rustic wall mounted textile. The Queen bed has a spectacular and high level view straight down the river through the shell of the old Slipway. Enjoy the ducks in the water below or dancing fantails and the occasional swinging possum in the rafters of the old slipway, just outside the large viewing window.

There are two private decks with garden and river views. A short walk away (less than a minute) is the central facilities block with showers and communal toilets.

This accommodation uses the Central Facilities Block including kitchen, hot showers, toilets and coin-operated washing machines and dryer. Hot water for showers is available 7 - 9am and 7 - 9pm. All guests are welcome to enjoy the River View Deck, Gazeebo and BBQ.

Guest access
Large, central water view deck complete with marquee and with café style seating for large groups, BBQ and Gazebo. We have our own Jetty and pontoon, ideal for swimming.
Only the lower Boat shed is off-limits to children.

Other things to note
The Pagoda Lodge Estate comprises 2 acres of gardens and mature trees. There are creative, multi-tiered grounds offering many private and tranquil spaces. There is a gentle flowing river and wide views to the Inlet and adjacent, large Historic Pa Site. As such, we have plentiful and varied bird-life. Please respect our wildlife and do not feed the ducks.
The river is a fish reserve, so no fishing allowed. No children in the old boat shed (lower level) and no swimming without supervision of parents.

The creative tropical gardens and park like grounds go down to the edge of the river. We are surrounded by horses and luxury properties on one side and a river and famous, historic reserve and on the other side. The river flows down the entire length of our property and meets the KeriKeri Sea Inlet .


A public walking track begins adjacent to our property and leads to the Stone Store and Pa Site (10 min), as well as three local waterfalls (Rainbow Falls, Wairoa Stream & Charlies Rock). We have our own private jetty and you are welcome to swim in the river.

My wife, Kathy, and myself, spent more than 20 years in Asia and were immediately drawn to the harmonious balance of “earth, wind and water” at Pagoda Lodge. The pagoda roofs, the variety of rare and mature trees, the tranquil river and the abundant bird life all create a special atmosphere. Over the last 17+ years we have developed and fine-tuned the property, gardens and especially the Glamping accommodation options, to create unique places to relax and enjoy.
